I've lived in Providence for a few years now and had yet to eat at Sienna and boy am I glad I finally went!! It was AMAZING. From start to finish, everything was delicious and our service was outstanding. Our server Nathan was very well versed in everything Sienna! He was very personable, attentive and provided great suggestions which all just added to how great our night was. I can't wait to go back!
Dinner was as wonderful as always!
Thanks so much
Everyone we interacted with was extremely friendly. The food was tasty and portions were great. So good we stayed for dessert.
First time visiting Sienna ... I enjoyed the food and service was attentive. However , I believe we had the worst table in the restaurant 🤨
Hello! I'm sorry you did not like your table. Did you happen to voice your concerns for it? We always move people if they are experiencing any discomfort/displeasure with their table. If you mention preferences for a specific area we can do that for next time!
We went to Siena after going to a show at PPAC. We were celebrating my sister-in-laws 60th birthday. I made reservations and put on reservations that it was for a birthday. Upon arrival there was a birthday card on the table for her signed by the staff. The food was so good. We had the Araccini short rib for appetizer. For dinner we had a salmon/risotto special, the short-rib dinner and the Fruitti De Mare. Everything was so good. Prices are very reasonable for a Federal Hill restaurant. Will definitely be going again.
THANKS HAPPY YOU ARE SUPPORTING THE THEATER AND OUR FRIENDS AT PPAC!!!
Drove from Hartford to have a wonderful evening. Not our first time at Siena and not our last. Hats off to the chef.
THANK YOU FOR THE EFFORT!
Great food had there salmon special very good my wife had pork chop she was very pleased with it service was on point will come again
Another outstanding visit to Siena. Our table was in the bar section for the first time in a while and it's quite a bit louder so we'll request back dining room in the future. Food is ALWAYS OUTSTANDING and I feel this is the best food and value on The Hill. Two words...VEAL CHOP!!!!!
First reservation of the day on a Sunday. Waiter named Nathan did an outstanding job. My guest were particularly not in the mood to rush and Nathan made us feel more than comfortable as we enjoyed are delicious meal. Hats off to Nathan.
Thank you! I'll make sure Nate sees this, he is a great asset to this company, appreciated so much! :0)
Absolutely a great place to eat, pleasant help, great tasting food. You can't go wrong. It's reasonably priced for the quality of the food.
Thank you AndyC!
My girlfriend and I took my Son and Daughter-In-Law to dinner at Sienna for their birthdays. The experience was delightful, from the Hostess’ welcome greeting thru cocktails, dinner, and dessert. In particular, Susan’s attention to detail was terrific.
Thanks you we will make sure Susan knows about her kudos! Thank you BruceF! :0)
We took our daughter and boyfriend out to dinner and it was a perfect evening!
Thanks for the word PERFECT, thats amazing!
The food at Sienna is amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed the calamari and a delicious salad with salmon, candied walnuts and vinaigrette. My only critique is the noise level.
Hello! Thanks for the honest review, we appreciate it - AMAZING, wow! We do have a reputation for being lively/busy at times. May I suggest our back area as a request for your next visit? It has a a lower noise level and offers a slightly more intimate dining experience. Feel free to ask when you book next time! :0)
Dinner with client went very well
Thanks for sending them our way to showcase this great city!!! Hope your client was IMPRESSED! :0)
Visiting from NYC and was very pleased with Siena -- Delicious meal and friendly service!
Thank you for the kudos MonicaO, we strive for delicious food and friendly service every time! :0)
Wait server seemed to have a problem with men. Told us all the specials without once looking at my husband, or at least just speaking between us, faced ahead. He never heard/understood a word she said. Bread and plates were taken away without asking if we were finished with them. Never got appetizer plates while sharing our app, had to double use the bread plate.
Brasato was delicious , but medium veal chop arrived med. rare. Fortunately as a leftover, it will cook a bit while reheating.
Not our usual up to par dinner. We all have lousy days, I guess.
However, we’ll see you soon. Smithfield is our usual location, but this was a Monday and they were closed.
I apologize if you felt mistreated/rushed. I respectfully disagree w/the assumption your server has a problem w/all men because you didn't observe eye contact. Servers are trained to be hospitable to all. Did you happen to voice concerns you could not hear? This review lists the restaurant as 'quiet', I'm certain if asked to speak up/repeat this may have resolved. All locations use large plates & they double as appetizer plates. Servers replace items at their discretion or upon request.
Went to dinner before a show at ppac. Got a free app when showing our ppac tickets! Was sooo good!
Best lobster ravioli I ever had! Service was excellent too!
Thank you, appreciated!!! :0)
Delicious food at great value. Hard to find a comparable restaurant for overall quality and price.
The food and service was amazing. We got the polpette grande and it was one of the best meatballs I have ever had. It was a little loud and crowded but overall loved the experience and would go back again.
Thank you so much for the feedback. We are known to be a lively spot, I apologize if it was intense to you. We have a back area that people find much more comfortable, maybe let us know you would like that for future reservations? We'd love to make your next visit as perfect as possible.
The meal was perfect Sat at the bar the bartender was friendly and welcoming
PERFECT! I'll pass this on to our Saturday bartenders, they will be so happy. :0)
Enjoyed the experience very much. Just terrific server and the food was outstanding.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!
Our waitress was outstanding. Her personality was energetic and welcoming. She presented the specials and explained everything with a big friendly smile and in a very exciting manner. She really does enjoy her job! I apologize that I can’t remember her name but we were in the back right table second from the corner table. Enjoyable evening and the food was good as always!
THANK YOU! I'm so happy you enjoyed your server and the experience. That's such an important part of the experience. Thanks again!
Sienna in Providence was a great dining experience to celebrate a special event. Food and specials were delicious, as always expected. Our service from Derek was perfect-accurate and attentive. Sienna is always a great choice!!
The night we were there was extremely noisy, but the food was excellent.

We enjoyed the food and ambiance. Quality food at a reasonable price. The wait was longer than expected (even after being at the restaurant 5-10min ahead of reservation).
It is a very nice date spot! The food was delicious.
Delicious meal with attentive service!
Everything was delicious, try the meatball appetizer!!
THANK YOU!!! We love our MEATBALL too!!!
Never any complaint. Food was delicious and the atmosphere is perfect for a nice dinner with your wife on date night.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
The food and service was amazing! Kayla was an amazing server. Can never get enough of the shrimp risotto.
We LOVE Kayla! Thank you we will be sure to mention to her that she was mentioned for outstanding service!
Service was good, rigatoni was undercooked - not al dente -undercooked, and the place was freezing. Same way last year. We’ll go somewhere else next year!!
Siena is a fabulous cute for quality Italian cuisine in a lovely setting. Our experience was 5 star from start go finish. A wonderful dinner before PPAC
THANK YOU!!! :0)
Fantastic restaurant with great service. My daughter goes to school in Providence and whenever I go visit we go to Fed Hill for dinner. This was my first time at Sienna , we will definitely go back. The braised short ribs were perfectly cooked and the risotto was as good as mine.
The BRASATO is the BEST!!! Thanks for sharing your experience, its appreciated.
Service was exceptional and food was delicious. They made a beautiful birthday presentation for our son.
We had a delicious dinner at Siena. The staff were friendly and attentive. They even surprised us with an anniversary dessert. We didn’t mention it. It’s in my profile on Open Table. Also, we were able to reserve a table for our son’s college graduation. The manager came to our table and we arranged everything within moments. This restaurant is must if you’re ever in RI.
This is one if my favorite restaurants. Great food! Great value
Great experience! The restaurant was crowded when we arrived for our reservation and the waitstaff were very apologetic for the wait. We were somewhat fearful of being seated in the front half of the restaurant it’s very crowded and noisy, but our table was located in the back section which was quiet and roomy. Food was fantastic and so was the service. Drinks were strong.
Thanks for the honest review and the detailed account of your positive experience, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! :0)
The food was absolutely delicious and the staff and service was amazing !
The meals were less than interesting. One meal actually looked like chicken nuggets from a kids menu. Server did not seem knowledgeable of the menu.
